Talent America Home Page


If a contestant is unable to attend a Talent America Preliminary, they can compete at one of the official TA Sanctioned Events listed below. Each of the Sanctioned Events will be awarding Qualifying Award Certificates to the Talent America National Finals in NYC. Performers who receive a Qualifying Award Certificate do NOT have to qualify at a TA preliminary, (a savings of $85)

This certificate allows them to go to the NYC Talent America National Finals once they submit their paperwork and payment for the National Finals.

We are excited to share our list of our Sanctioned Talent America Preliminary Events...the following companies offer amazing opportunities to all of their participants. Please visit their websites and make plans to attend one of their events.
Additional information on each Sanctioned Event posted below quick reference links.

Amazing Beauties & Cuties LLC
A little about Amazing Beauties & Cuties...My name is Tammy Gielniak and I got involved in pageantry with my daughter, Isabella, almost 12 years ago.  For many years I had wanted to start my own pageant system in Michigan incorporating everything that I thought was positive about pageants.  After my mom passed away I decided it was time to stop talking and start doing what I had been talking about for so long and Amazing Beauties & Cuties was born.  The first pageant only had about 10 contestants, but I did not cancel.  I ran it just as if there were 100 contestants and gave out everything I said I would.  The next pageant had a few more kids, the next ones more and more.  I will always give away what I say I will give away.  I do not prorate.  I pride myself on running a fun and fair pageant.  In fact, I have a suggestion box in case you have any helpful ideas--I am always looking for ways to make this system even better.  I like to personalize the experience for the contestants.  I also love surprises!  I utilize a variety of judges from both in and out of state.  You will never see relatives or coaches of contestants judging.  I also train my judges.  The judges also come from a variety of backgrounds.  Sometimes they are even modeling and casting agents--ABC royalty and ambassadors have appeared on television, in music videos and commercials, and on the big screen. You will see helpful comments on score sheets.  You will never see "pretty girl, nice smile. 7".  Obviously everyone wants to win.  While everyone can't win, there is no reason everyone can't leave feeling like they won; and although it sounds cliche, if a child performed on stage in front of everyone, they should feel like they won because that is an accomplishment!  I encourage the contestants to cheer on and support their fellow competitors regardless of  coaching affiliation.   Because I believe pageants should be about promoting positive self esteem ALL contestants will be called up for their special moment on stage at crowning.  If you ever have any questions or concerns about anything please ask me-- please do not listen to second hand information.  Lastly, I hope that ABC will be on your list of the must-do pageants.  
The Mission of Amazing Beauties & Cuties: 
To build self confidence and character in its contestants, make them feel empowered to achieve their goals and dreams, and show every contestant that they are special in their own unique way.

Beyond the Crown Pageants

My name is Jay Trontz, and I am the founder/director & coordinator of the ‘Beyond The Crown’ Pageant System {formerly Candy Kiss USA Pageant System}.  The pageant is geared to girls 0-16 years old nationwide.
I have been involved in pageantry since 1980, both as a parent of pageant contestants, as well as a judge.  My daughter was the very first “Miss National Pre-Teen Hospitality” in 1983“; “Miss Metro New York National Pre-Teen” in 1984, as well as “Miss Massachusetts National Pre-Teen” in 1984.
In 1988 &1989, I was the founder/director of the short lived “Miss American Sweetheart” pageant.  I have judged many local pageants over the years, and have enjoyed that as well as being a director.  
Now celebrating our 4th year, we offer 4 themed pageants a year, including a holiday (December) pageant.
You see, my love of pageants has never died. It will go on forever. I love my family & friends, but ‘pageants’, are the 1st runner-up!

Road to Broadway

Janet also competed and won many awards in national and international dance competitions in ballroom, ballet, tap, jazz, in her youth.  She has choreographed for dance schools, competitive dance teams, high school dance teams, theater productions, competitive ballroom dancers and won choreography awards.
Janet owned and directed her own, successful dance school in Pennsylvania and retired in 2007. She still teaches, part-time, and judges dance competitions, and pageants.
She started entering her own granddaughter into natural pageants, and also began to involve her granddaughter in professional modeling and commercials. Janet was inspired by a former staff member of her dance school who had her own children involved in pageants and modeling, and it intrigued her. After her granddaughter won some pageant titles, she thought that maybe it would be an exciting to organize The Road to Broadway Pageant.
